Lake City 3, Pine River 1

Pine River hosted Lake City on Tuesday (Oct. 19) while celebrating Senior Night and lost in four sets.

Lake City prevailed 25-9, 23-25, 25-20, 25-19.

"We started out real rough in game 1," Pine River coach Jana Dennis said. "I think the whole concept of it being Senior Night was a very real thing. We settled in after that first set and played some very solid ball. Our aggressive serving kept us in many games and our scrappy play helped as well.

"We wish we could have brought home a win tonight for our seniors but there were definitely some great things that happened throughout the night."
